Before you know it Christmas will be here. I love decorating the house for Christmas and part of what makes it special is having things that the children made out for us all to enjoy. My mum kept all the Christmas decorations that I made when I was little and we still get them out every year, along with the things that my children have started to make.
Today I’m sharing with you a fab Christmas craft you can make with your little one and get out year upon year – a handprint Christmas wreath.
It’s not difficult to make and guaranteed your kids will love getting their hands messy in paint so it will be a fun activity to do together.
You will need some cardboard, paper, paint, glitter and glue and a ribbon.
Paint your little one’s hand and make lots of handprints on paper in festive colours.
Leave to dry and then cut out
Cut out a wreath shape out of cardboard and glue your handprints around it.
Paint with glue and sprinkle with glitter. Hang up with the ribbon
I love this because you can get it out every year and remember how little your small person’s hands were! You could even make one every year to see how much they have grown and have a whole collection by the time they are grown up. It looks really festive too and perfect for brightening up the house at Christmas time.
